Cabo tourist tax to be put to good use

Date Published:

The new Cabo foreign tourist tax to be used as development lever. And will fund  social infrastructure projects like housing, lighting, and security...

The impending new tourist tax in Cabo has been hotly debated over the last 6 months. Should it be charged, how should it be collected, and most importantly how should it be spent.

Well, here’s the thing. It is happening, For sure. It may be collected via hotels, or via the airlines. It’s still not entirely clear how. or when collection of the tax will begin.  But BCS Tourism Secretary, Genaro Ruiz, has been very clear on how it will be spent.

“We cannot have a top -level luxury, tourist destination, if local services are at a third world level. The City Hall has big needs - social infrastructure  projects,  security, desalination plants, health, housing, and lighting are all needed.”

The state government has agreed that use of the funds will be completely transparent, and they will be held accountable for all spending.

With a projected arrival this year of 1.8 million tourists in Los Cabo, the 350 peso per person tax could raise as much $630 million pesos per year (almost $34 million US dollars at current rates).

If the Governor is true to his word, a lot could be done with this money. It’s less than $20 for you as a tourist. But it  could be the difference of a house or a school for a kid here in Cabo.
